Here it goes again.

I haven't been knitting again. Le sigh.

I'm not sure why. Another relationship fell apart, and while, yes, I've been nursing my broken heart, I had stopped knitting sometime in early July. Which is before the breakup.

I've been working on the Cherry cardigan and I finished the front left panel. It's rather long, despite being the measurements the pattern suggests, so I'm a tad concerned. Should I rip back a bit and shorten it? I've never knit a cardigan that needs to be seamed together, so I don't know if some of the length will disappear with seaming. Suggestions? When I hold it up to myself, it seems awfully long (and my torso is pretty average length).

Maybe if I can get this figured out it will rejuvenate my knitting spirit, yes?

Also, here's a long overdue FO shot of the Hermione Hat for Carrie. Whether I want to or not, I've got to start knitting away at the companion mittens for this project.

And in other news, there might possibly be some small furry felines in my next post. Hehe.

What's the width like on the cardi? If it's snug fitting, sometimes the length is taken up by the sideways stretch. You can always block it so that it's shorter.

Do I hear the pitter patter of little furry paws? Can't wait to find out!

I am sorry about your broken heart. That tends to throw everything out of whack.

Cherry is looking really lovely. I have never had a problem with cardigans being too long, usually I have to add length. But maybe factor in your bust. That might account for some extra length.
